Born: 27 October 1950, Morristown, New Jersey

After being expelled from high school for "surliness", Lebowitz worked various odd jobs (including writing pornography on contract and driving a taxi) and sold ads for a small magazine before Andy Warhol hired here as a columnist for Interview. She also wrote for Mademoiselle before publishing a collection of essays titled Metropolitan Life in 1978 and Social Studies in 1981. She has appeared in the character of Judge Janice Goldberg on the television drama Law & Order. Her commentaries on American life, predicated on living at New York City all of her adult life, are comparable to those of Dorothy Parker.
